I would like to find out how to flatten the freezer section in my mini fridge. If anybody could point me in the direction of a video or other information that would be great. I have searched and have not had any luck in finding the info I am looking for. I have taken a close look at the parts and it seems doable but I am afraid I might kink or break the tube. This fridge is pretty old and it works great the way it is. We have always kept our beverages in it because it keeps them at the perfect temp for drinking. I do want to convert. It over so I can put five gallon corny kegs in it but I don't want to kill it in the process.

did a quick google search and it looks like every fridge is different. Where does the coolant come in for yours? I can't tell if it's from one of those four posts that hold it up or not. If not, it looks like you can take those off completely and just bed it back against the back of the fridge. whatever you do don't kink the pipe so take it slow if you still plan on doing it.

Couple of videos i saw which looks different from your fridge but basic method is the same.

Yea, thanks for that information. My fridge is just not right for what I want to do with it. The four post are just screws with rubber bushings on them to hold up the iced box. The tube that connects to the upper rear of it just feels to brittle to bend. And I am not sure if I can end it far enough because of its box shape, unless I could undo the seam of the box and unwrap it and then bend it. I think this project has too many things to potentially go wrong so I am just going to bag it. I am going to watch for a full size fridge on Craig's list, that way my SWMBO can have a freezer for me to put next years fish catch in.

Thanks for the advice though!
